Short description: In a software, aggregated load profiles of several electricity customers should be automatically compared to the generation profiles of existing/potential renewable energy communities, all based on ¼-h data, user-friendly, with visualisation and filter options regarding the community’s needs.
Market potential: Small, local RECs are expected to see a very fast market growth in the EU as more Member States adapt their legislation for this model. This will create a growing market for REC management solutions.
Timing: In countries like Austria where all legal requirements are in place, REC preparation tools are needed as soon as possible.
Desired result: The challenge owner is a regional energy agency and supports municipalities in energy transition and Renewable Energy Communities. Therefore an easy-to-handle tool for analysis of electricity demand and generation when setting up Energy Communities is useful.
Information on challenge owner: Regional Energy Agency
